Finding Your Voice

Credibility, empowerment, and collaboration are not just ideas for business and political leaders—they are concepts that ordinary citizens can grasp to bring out the leader within themselves and to effect positive social change at the grassroots level. Larraine R. Matusak, a noted expert on leadership development, describes leadership as a body of knowledge that can be taught and learned, and sets forth a practical set of tools and resources to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for effective leadership. Using diverse examples of citizens who have accepted the responsibility to lead, Matusak shows how individuals who are without a title or position of power can still pursue their passion and fit leadership opportunities to their specific talents.
